Yesterday we were lucky enough to get some more hands on time with Black Ops 2 over at Treyarch in Santa Monica. We were invited out to a community event and got to play 6 straight hours of multiplayer over 8 Maps (3 never before seen) and had access to every item (gun, attachment, camo, etc.) in the game. Everything was completely unlocked for us to play with. We were also allowed to capture gameplay footage from the new MP map “Hijacked” which we’ll be uploading to our channel in the next day or so HERE.

Treyarch’s Studio head Mark Lamia kicked off the event with the brand new Zombie trailer and gave us all a great rundown on what to expect with new zombie modes. Afterwards, David Vonderhaar declassified the last remaining intel in regards to BO2 multiplayer. Here’s what we learned:

10 Prestige Emblems- We saw all 10 Prestige emblems, and they are by far the best prestige emblems in Call of Duty. The best way to describe the tenth emblem is a half skull/half zombie head. All emblems are unique and incredibly more detailed than past CoD prestige emblems.
Challenges- Don’t reset after you prestige.
Keep Prestiging- The prestige and rank system has been designed so that every player will keep prestiging. Treyarch is giving you more incentive to keep prestiging by limiting the amount of stuff you lose.
Prestige Tokens- Are returning, except this time you get to keep your gun progress (attachments) with which ever gun you chose to permanently unlock.
In Addition to 1 unlock token, you get to pick 1 option below:
Extra Create-a-class Slot- Just like before, only 5 extra slots for a total of 10.
Reset- Returning from MW3, complete reset if you choose to.
Refund- A new feature in BO2, allows you to undo a previous unlock token and spend it somewhere else.

More Layers- 32 total layers to be exact. Some of the emblems Treyarch made blew our minds.
RGB Color Wheel- Not only do you have the original standard colors to choose from, you can now use custom colors from the RGB scale if your want to be picky about which colors you’re using.
Transparency- Make the background of your emblem transparent. Which means a carefully placed emblem over a player card could make for some interesting combinations. Treyarch put this to good use when designing the player cards for BO2 (which look amazing and more detailed by the way)

Dolly Cam- Its returning in Black Ops 2. Nuff said.
Sticky Camera- Basically have the camera stick to and follow non-player objects. In the example we saw, the camera followed a Quadrotor in 3rd person, in another the camera followed a RPG missile while in flight. This is the best addition to theater mode in our opinion, we saw this new feature in action and cant wait to see what people do with it.
20 Clips per video- The clip count has now been raised to a whopping 20. Edit and crop a gameplay video into 20 different segments for editing. You can even merge all 20 clips into 1 clip and then keep going.
Highlight Reel- Press one button and it edits and compiles all of your kills and accomplishments in the match into into 1 video.
First Person POV- Is possible for all players just like the original Black Ops (was removed in MW3)

Kill Confirmed- It’s returning and plays just like MW3. The dog tags have been slightly upgrades and appear brighter (more futuristic looking too)
Hardpoint- Brand new game mode for Black Ops 2. Players must hold a single objective for a certain amount of time before it move to another random spot on the map. Very fast passed mode which results in a high number of kills.
Party Games- Is the new name for custom or private matches. They’re designed to be played with a party (group of friends). One in the Chamber, Gun Game and some more favorites are returning.

Bootcamp- Designed to introduce new players to multiplayer. Teams are Human+Bots VS. Human+Bots. Players can rank up to level 10.
Bot Stomp- The original Combat Training mode, Humans VS Bots.
Objective- Play with and against bots in various objective based game modes.

Express- Los Angeles Bullet Train Station. Good up and down engagements on bullet train tracks. A train will speed along the tracks every a couple minutes or so. If you’re in it’s path then consider yourself dead LOL. (My favorite of the new maps)
Hijacked- Luxurious Super Yacht. Frantic, yet controlled close quarter engagements.
Overflow- Peshawar, Pakistan. Great urban engagements in the flooded streets.

Remember, we’ll be uploading footage very soon of gameplay on the MP map “Hijacked”. Our footage will feature the never before seen Assault rifle “M27”, Five-seveN, SCAR-H, MP7 and the Cross Bow.

That’s it for now, we’ll have plenty more coming this week so stay frosty!

CoD leaker claims Modern Warfare 3 Campaign Remastered coming in 2021

Call of Duty fans could be set for huge nostalgia in 2021 with a remaster of the Modern Warfare 3 campaign expected to drop.

Modern Warfare 3 looks set to follow in the footsteps of Modern Warfare 2 by releasing a remastered version of its campaign component. A leak has suggested that the Call of Duty content is scheduled for 2021.

There’s absolutely no doubting the impact that the Modern Warfare games have had on the video game industry. At the time, CoD’s 2011 launch made Modern Warfare 3 the most successful entertainment launch of all-time by grossing over $400 million in 24 hours.

The continued exploits of Captain Price, Soap, and the gang were massively sought after and people flocked to it in droves. Now, players will apparently get to revisit this classic campaign in 2021 with a leak hinting that Modern Warfare 3 Remastered is on the way.

According to the MW2Ghost, “I was told that MW3 Campaign Remastered is definitely coming this year, and should be coming Q2 which is the original plan, one month exclusive to PlayStation.”

If true, this would follow a similar model to other previous Call of Duty content by declaring PlayStation to be its exclusive home for a while.

Black Ops Cold War has been an example of this with PlayStation users being treated exclusively to the game’s Onslaught mode. Modern Warfare 2 Remastered also released first on PlayStation.

MW2Ghost also followed this message up by saying, “Worded this a bit weird, so, it was originally set for Q2 of this year under a deal with PlayStation, but not sure if that’s still the case (date). Apparently, it’s definitely still coming at some point this year.”

Modern Warfare 2 remastered proved to be a financial victory for Activision, as people clamored for the epic campaign that helped to kickstart a generation.

With the extraordinary success of Warzone potentially affecting Call of Duty 2021, a remastered version of the Modern Warfare 3 campaign may have to keep fans ticking over until Call of Duty 2021 is announced.

How to play Rebirth Island in private matches

Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War has arrived in Warzone, and it has delivered the ability to play Rebirth Island in private matches.

Rebirth Island Private Matches

Season 3 has officially arrived in Call of Duty: Warzone. It has brought plenty of changes, with one of the most notable is the ability to play private matches on Rebirth Island.

The first season of Black Ops Cold War content for Warzone saw Rebirth Island become the second map that players could battle on in the popular Call of Duty battle royale. The much smaller map and lower player count resulted in players being able to have quicker and even more intense matches than Verdansk.

While the community has been able to play private matches on Verdansk for some time now, the same has not been true for Rebirth Island, until now thanks to the Season 3 update for Warzone.

Players looking to customize their experience on the smaller Warzone map and host their own exclusive matches now can, thanks to the addition of private matches to the Black Ops Cold War map for Warzone.

Individuals who would like to set up these kinds of games on this particular map will need to head into Warzone and click on the tab at the very bottom of the Warzone playlist where you find all of the different game modes that you can play currently.

You will then need to select which game mode you would like to play. Once you have selected the game mode, you will be sent to the lobby screen, where you will be able to go to the bottom of the screen and switch the map from Verdansk to Rebirth Island.

Make sure you have enough players in the lobby to start a match, and then press start match.

There is no doubt that the addition of this feature to Verdansk was a hit amongst the community and will likely be used a great deal by players throughout Season 3 who prefer to get their victories and highlights on the smaller Warzone map instead of its larger predecessor.

The addition of this feature is just one of the many changes that have arrived in Warzone by way of the Season 3 update. From new weapons like the PPSH and Swiss K31 to the Hunt for Adler event, community members will have plenty to enjoy for the foreseeable future.
